Just like makeup and clothes, you can use nail polish to express your mood and personality. Bright red for when you feel sexy and nude if you’re more conservative. However, there are some who choose to stick to one color or go for nudes to stay in their comfort zone. If you are one of those people but want to start wearing a tad more color, we’ve listed some muted shades for you to try.
Taking inspiration from runway looks of Alexander Wang, Céline, and Marni, we chose muted yellows and pinks that you can start wearing on your next manicure.
Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2017 + Kinetics in Grand Plie
This camel colored coat by Alexander Wang is great piece to break up the different textures in the outfit. Similarly, polish by Kinetics is a great neutral shade you can try. It has a gel-like finish and lasts for up to 10 days. Available at Beauty Bar, Central Square
